Chapter Summary

This front matter section of the book The Prophet-King: Moses Traditions and the Johannine Christology contains the preface, and a list of abbreviations. "King" as an christological appellative in the Fourth Gospel has never been the object of a special investigation. The reason for this neglect, of course, is that it is commonly assumed that the term "king" refers to the Messiah, the Son of David. Since it is generally held that the Johannine interpretation explicitly denies the political element of the Davidic ideology, the title "king" is ordinarily thought to have no special significance. Ferdinand Hahn's direct evidence for the early application of the Mosaic prophet notion to Jesus comes exclusively from Luke-Acts. He labors to show that this is not a Lucan peculiarity, but stems from traditional material which Luke has incorporated.

Keywords: Davidic ideology; Ferdinand Hahn; Johannine Christology; Messiah; Moses traditions
